My wife, Angela and I popped in to this restaurant for a spot of lunch, and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by Sophia with great warmth and shown to our table of choice. There were quite a few diners already present, which made it pleasantly buzzy. The background music was at the right decibel level, which set the mood... More

I don't think that Zizzi compares well with other Italian chains.Food is ok - but only ok - it never tastes as nice as the description on the menu. My son is wheat intolerant and the quality of the gluten free food is so much better in Prezzo or Pizza Express. Visited Loughton branch two weeks ago and was shocked... More

Poor service, not enough staff to serve. Arrived at 7.30pm and received our starters at 8.45pm!!! Although the food was ok, nothing special, we were very disappointed and wouldn't recommend it.

We have eaten here several times The food is very good in particular the massive pizzas which are huge.We enjoyed pasta on this visit .These were a good size and freshly cooked .This chain sends emails of offers if you sign on and this helps tempt you to return as they planned A great chain to enjoy fresh italian food

My kids find this place awesome.....I, however, can see the wood from the forest! Its okay but I never feel nourished or satisfied after a meal here. I will say one thing for it - it is the best pizza I have had in England (if I am comparing it to the other chains, franchises and independents out there). Does... More

We were greeted at the door with a smile and seated straight away. Our waitress Aida gave us menus and was incredibly helpful and attentive, despite being rushed off her feet with a large party in the back room. The vegan menu gave some great choices and my son and his girlfriend were thrilled with how good their vegan margherita... More

We were a party of 5 adults and pre-booked a table for dinner @ 20.15. On arrival, we were shown to our reserved table which was comfortable and nicely located. We were surprised that the place was not very well attended with lots of empty tables. We last visited this restaurant on 24.08.15 and unfortunately, the comments we made then... More

Food is always good quality and the service is prompt and friendly. I normally have a pizza which are a good size for the price. I would recommend this restaurant to friends.
